Hi everyone i'm just coming back to the hobbie after 5 years of being away and playing with 1:1 cars, in those years i came across a jato 3.3 in need of a little tlc and bought thinking about rebuilding it but its just sat for the past 2 years and nothing has been done to it. The engine is good and i believe its not even broken in or only has one of the 5 tanks required, has a convertion to roto start so no bulky ez star and has a lot of aluminum parts (front and rear arms, shock mounts, etc...) it has the crapiest shocks to my knowledge (2 sets of integy shocks silver and blue) but can't find the remote...
Gmade piggyback shocks 93mm
Traxxas tqi with docking base for iPod and all telemetry sensors
Traxxas 6542 flywheel with magnet
New bearings for the tires because two went bad
Bought an ez start because I just hate the roto start, only good for when racing.
Revo gearing 40/20 for a bit more top end speed, I plan to keep it mainly on road.
The only thing I have not bought is the losi carb and the revo gearing since I'm not too convinced about it but please let me know guys and if you have any other ideas throw them in, I'm gonna upload some Picts of the truck in a bit.
what i want to do is to make it run properly and make it a bit faster and also thinking about an aluminum bulkhead plus he car came with all aluminum steering but its really sloppy and I have not been able to start the car even thou I changed the plug but will try again later on when I buy new gas (was trying with old leftover gas) but the engine feels strong and with good compression.
Please guys let me know and any ideas are welcome.
